    Found this little critter at a local gunshow and just couldn`t pass it up even if it was a little over priced. Mid 70s S&W model 34-1 .22LR. The pics do not do it justice.
    Looks like the original owner fired a couple of boxes of ammo with it and then stashed it away in the sock drawer.

    Nice find! So many of today's "new and improved" firearms are grossly overpriced, I sure don't have a problem paying a decent price for a decent 'real gun'. :) Well done!

    Congratulations. I have one just like it. The J-frame .22's are great. I hope yours didn't set you back too much. You don't often find the pinned barrel version around here for less than $500.

    You nailed the price. And I couldn`t get the seller to budge a penny on it either.
    Still think it was a little on the high side. But if things keep going the way they are now, in two or three years $500 might sound dirt cheap.
    Not so long ago I bought an as new in box model 29-2 for less than this price.
